Meeting time and place TBA

Interested in some current practice at Deception Pass?  We'll be practicing and playing in up to 6.3 kts of flood current.  This is not a class, so participants must be confident in this type of current, or enrolled in the Sea Kayak Intermediate Kayak Course (and have already taken the Introduction to Deception Pass currents class.)

Participants must also have recent (within the last 6 months) successful practice in kayak re-entries (rolls, rescues, etc.)

A Discover Pass is required at the Coronet Bay parking lot, where we will be meeting.
